Pretty sure that's the bottom of the chain where it meets the very front of the pedal when that happens.

I think the only way around it is to switch out the chain for a belt. You still can out run the pedal, but a belt will be quieter.

Direct drive will take care of it too, but it requires a new pedal, unless someone's prepared to do major modifications.
